The former capital of the island of Tenerife, San Cristóbal de La Laguna was founded in 1496 and developed according to a grid layout next to a lagoon that has since disappeared. Nowadays, it is a pleasure to stroll around La Laguna, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and seat of the university. Its colourfully fronted buildings with ornate doors and windows, its lovingly restored old palaces, churches and convents, and its patchwork of architectural styles, lend the town an undeniable charm.
